Chargers To Play on Soccer Field Next 2 Years

The StubHub Center in Carson, California. That will be the new home for the San Diego Chargers for the next 2 years.

According to USA Today, The owner of the Chargers informed the league today that they will be moving the team to Los Angeles and playing in the StubHub Center for the next 2 years while they wait for a new stadium in Inglewood to finish being built. Once that is complete, both the Chargers and the Rams will play there. 

Until then... they both have to squeeze into the StubHub Center. A 30,000 seat Soccer-Specific stadium in Carson, California, currently the home to Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy and the training base for all of the United States National Teams (Men's, Women's, and Youth).

Not only is the stadium only HALF the usual capacity for an NFL team, it was built specifically for soccer. This means that the seats come down closer to the sidelines, and generally sit lower than you would expect in a Football-Specific stadium. Also, the dimensions of the field will push those on the sidelines further away from the action while causing those in the end zones to constantly have obstructed views as they will be on top of everyone on the field.

The NFL Teams are trying to sell it as 'intimate.' Reality is, there will be a lot pissed off fans who have to pay WAY too much to see a game, only to have a completely blocked view most of the time. 

Best of luck to them anyways!
